The Sedona Conference International Programme on Cross-Border Discovery and Data Protection – 20-21 June 2017 in Dublin

SedonaOne of the most useful events which I attend every year is The Sedona Conference International Programme on Cross-Border Discovery and Data Protection Laws.

Last year Sedona Working Group 6 met in Berlin, an appropriate setting partly because of Germany’s leadership in EU data protection and partly because of Berlin’s reminders, in memorials all around the city, of the need to protect personal information. I wrote about that in an article after last year’s WG6 meeting called From Himmler to Theresa May to Trump to Microsoft + LinkedIn: why we need data protection.

The year before that the programme was held in Hong Kong in recognition of the growing spread and importance of data protection in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Sedona Conference has just announced that the 2017 Programme will be held in Dublin on 20-21 June 2017. I am just returned from an event in Dublin, where much of the talk was of the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation and of Brexit.

There are other reasons why Dublin and Ireland are good places to hold an event like this, ranging from scenery and history through to the food.

For the moment, this announcement is at the “Save the Date” stage. The faculty, the agenda and the supporting materials will be available in due course – the latter are always a trove of valuable information to which I refer frequently

As always, this program is by invitation only and the Sedona Conference will shortly be accepting applications for invitations.
